News: 10/5/12 - All new members are REQUIRED to fill out the signature section of your profile. Otherwise, you may be deleted from the forum. This is to help me determine if you are a member or if you are a spammer. Thank you.

9/22/12 - I ask that you please add a signature line to your profiles on the Cletrac Forum to help me to determine who is spam and who is not. You don't need to drop everything and do this immediately, but please do it when you get a minute and you are visiting the forum. Just go to http://cletrac.org/forum2010/index.php?action=profile and put something in the signature area. If you no longer want to be a member on the Cletrac Forum, please remove your membership.

8/10/11 - Added a new board: Trucking and Hauling

5/30/11 - Just added several new pictures to the Photo Gallery, including several Alfta Track OC-4 working in snow logging, several from the Chicago Road Show, and some from a logging show (not all Oliver/Cletrac). All these pictures are from around 1963 and were scanned from old slides given to me by my late friend John W. Davis. Go to the Photo Gallery and click on "NEW" to see these pictures. Quality is marginal, but I think you will enjoy them.

2/13/11 - Just added a new board "New members introduce yourselves here".

Folks, I just added a new photo gallery where you can upload your own pictures with descriptions, etc. Right now this is in the beta testing stage to see how it works out. Give it a try, but please keep a backup copy of your pictures just in case we decide to use something else. I would prefer you use your real name on the photo gallery, but if you really don't want to, please use the same username as on the forum. Please put your images into the proper categories and take care when your write out your descriptions and image names so people can search for them. I am learning this as we go. At least at the beginning, I have it set up where the administrator has to approve members. I am afraid we may get porn spam in here if we leave it open. To get to the photo gallery, use this link: http://cletrac.org/photos/

Folks, when you join the forum, or when you get the chance to update your Profile, please be sure to put your location and interests. Filling out your signature would help as well. I've been getting some spammers joining and posting links to sites that are completely unrelated to Cletrac or Oliver, or anything to do with tractors. It would make it easier for me, as well as all the other members, if you guys would put your location and interest in your profile. See http://cletrac.org/forum2010/index.php?topic=1299.msg5184#msg5184

Thanks,
Administrator

Hi everyone I'm new to this posting thing and if i ramble a bit forgive me. I am from WV lived here all my life. I didn't take a interest in anything old till i was bout 14 (I'm 28 now). I have noticed at least here in the mountain state that old tractors and crawlers don't come up for sale anymore like they usted to. I'm wondering if people have junked everything or are just holding onto things. what is it like in the areas where some of u r from?  A person mite see 3 or 4 Hg/oc-3 in a summer in just the local trading paper now their aren't any. Every now and then a bigger beast 4 sale. It has probably been over a year since i have seen a crawler for sale locally. I own several Oliver tractors and two crawlers and helped save another that a friend of mine now has. just wondered bout the rest of the country and other parts of the world is like when it comes to this.
thanks for taking time to read this. have a good one

I see quite a few out west here but then again I search Craigslist a lot. Also see them on ebay fairly frequently. I wouldn't say they were hard to find at all. Most of the ones I see for sale are actually in the midwest and east coast.

There have been an awful lot of good tractors that went to scrap. The way scrap prices took off a few years ago, a lot of people cleaned out their yards. But, overall,, there are still a lot of old tractors out there. The other factor is the guys (like me) that keep buying them & piling them up.  But, having said all that, I still find plenty of tractors to buy.  I'm in western pa,, just for reference.

I agree with Doug, but we really don't live that far from each other, and do the same kind of hoarding!
